EVEN OUR LORD…SLEPT!

EVEN OUR LORD…SLEPT!

When Jesus came out as a Babe,

Think of all the joy He gave…

Heaven sat aside

Wondering  eyes wide,

How could this little One save?

The angels had to wait a few years,

Watching this boy through their tears..

‘Tween Heaven and earth

They witnessed His birth,

Watching long growing-up years.

He couldn’t reappear in the air,

He had to change to clean underwear…

Energy resgtored

As the family snored,

Sounds deafening to the ear!

Sometimes Jesus learned the hard way

Had to pace himself for every day…

Food needed time

To cook, and wine

Had to ferment for a coming Feast Day.

Delayed by others at fault,

How tempting to open the vault…

Of powers set aside–

Just once–to see pride

Of his family in times difficult1

But a sinless life Jesus served,

Facing crucifixion He never deserved…

Must have been eternity

To live humanly,

Knowing a seat next to his Father god was reserved!

In a way I know just how He felt,

Having to tighten the belt…

Ministering long–

Needing breaks to go on–

Talking to His father as He knelt.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
